Still a long way to go. Plenty of promoted sides have made superb starts in recent years before being relegated that season.

Charlton sticks out when they went up in 98. I think by October they were sitting top 6 after having drew 3-3 at Anfield. They then just lost a few games and the confidence plummeted.
"Plenty" = it once happened to Charlton 20 years ago.

Remember when Sunderland had a good start to the season? No? Me neither. <scratch>

With the pot being empty , there seems little chance that they can buy striker in Jan window . Downward spiral for them I predict .
Ashley tells you it's raining. Do you look out the window?

I don't think they'll be anywhere near the playoffs but they will be miles from relegation. We'll see Sunderland back in the PL withing the next five years.

Sunderland will absolutely not be in the Prem within 5 years I don't think! They're loaded with debt and it's pretty clear Short can't be f***ed investing any more money. That wouldn't be too bad if they had valuable assets they could auction off but they've got f*** all now Defoe and Pickford have gone. The entire club is operating from top to bottom in a poisonous atmosphere. Their wages to turnover is around 75% of premiership turnover too, wouldn't surprise me if it hit 90% or more now they've got relegated. They have a big rebuild on their hands before they get promoted

They'll be in administration within a year. Not looking good at all for them financially.

I love RTG. They are so belligerent. Are they like that in real life, or just online where it's nice and safe?

there's a certain degree of Schadenfreude for the small minority of Sunderland fans who are eejits, but also I don't want the club to go pop and never see them again. Especially since moving away from North East, feel mackems and geordies have much in common

looks bad for them

I agree, the vast majority of SAFC reflect our own fan base; Mostly the same backgrounds with a nice mix of locals and people from other areas/countries. Also a similar proportion of absolute whoppers, it has to be said.

No one deserves to see their club go under completely, however a stint in League 1 would be amusing for a little while at least.

It's been awhile...

https://www.grandoldteam.com/forum/thre ... ll.105643/

It's pretty well known Everton fans have shadow syndrome from Liverpool being the dominant club in the area; hence their affinity with Sunderland. After browsing their forum, I'm of the belief that the lack of vitamin D has twisted them into pasty, bitter people and has led many to develop an irrational hatred for Newcastle fans too - apparently due to thinking we're too big for our boots (Koppites of the North etc). All well and good if they themselves were tempered in their expectations and demands, yet here they are, with their average pre-game prediction being about 4-0. They might be the most oblivious fans in the league at the minute.

Lovely stuff.

I'm sure Rafa as our manager hasn't improved their feelings towards us either.

I always thought that Evertonians didn’t mind Rafa? Obviously he has Liverpool connection, but he did a lot for the city too and always thought that counted a lot for Everton fans (despite him being a red).
I'm the scumbag outlaw. You're the pillar of justice. Neither of us like looking at ourselves in the mirror. Do we have a deal?

Yeah I don't think there is anything in the Rafa factor. Everton had an irrational hatred for us before Rafa was our manager.

Whilst you can’t judge a whole fan base on forums and twitter, I’ve always found Evertonians to be among the most obnoxious arrogant fans out there.

Cunts. The lot of them.

I'd forgotten about both this thread and grandoldteam but as soon as I saw the thread I knew what it would be about <laugh>
